The Lovers Collection

The Lovers Collection is an ode to desires, friendships, love and most definitely lovers.

It is one of many to come. An ongoing collection, 'cause why not.

Inspired by a raw and real kind of love for those I see around me. I have always been attracted to the inspired, the unfiltered, the rawest kind of people.

I think I fall in love a little bit with anyone who shows me their true soul and friendship. I understand them the most as do they me.

This collection was an opportunity to put out some really cool & elevated jewelry that would mix and match with the old and new. Created with incredible mindfulness. The Lovers Collection moves past the traditional locket as a way to show someone you love deep. Using Sterling Silver and 18K Gold Vermeil contrasted with brilliant cut Cubic Zirconia. Constellation pieces. Interlocking rings, necklaces and ear cuffs. Everything fits together the way it’s supposed to.

Whether for yourself or any of the great loves of your life. This latest collection gives you the chance to let it be heard.

So make sure to tell them…

How they are the only face you see in a crowd.

How much good you see in their bad.

How you see them when you close your eyes.

How often you love them & think about them between the moments in between the seconds of every last minute.

There will always be a reason why you meet people in your life they were meant to change you in someway or you will be the one to do that for them.

I haven’t regretted the things I’ve said nearly as much as the words I left unspoken.

To love a person is to see all of their magic and to remind them of it when they have forgotten.

Here are to the nights that turned into day, that turned into the most real and raw love, with real friends and real LOVERS.

So this “LOVERS” collection is for you & them.

Resort 2016: Villa Carlotta

There is something about those perfect days spent wrapped up in your own world. 

When the outside life has no room in your own. When your daydreams, your ideas, your make believe, your music, your art and your imagination are all that exist.

The kind of days when you could be alone for hours, sitting on your floor playing dress up with your mom’s jewelry box, listening to your favorite songs over and over again, painting the faces of people and places you have never seen before but somehow know so well. Putting your thoughts down into words, which somehow made them so much more real and understandable. 

Spending hours thinking about what your life might be like when you are older, when you have finally done and seen things you have always wanted.

Do you remember walking by an open window or the door of an old apartment building and looking inside for just a second. Wanting only to know more of the world inside of there. 

Or passing by a person on the street and wondering what it might be like to know them, have met them.

Not worrying about what direction or path your life might take you but simply admiring what way it could go.

The days when life was less about what we thought we needed and more about who we just were.

I remember all of those moments, they were the important ones, the ones that lead us in the right direction. 

This collection is both delicate and strong with rock 'n roll looking chains and studs like the “Casablanca Cut Out Diamond Chain Earrings” that loop through all earholes and chokers with delicate chain and cut-out triangles. We worked with our favorite, most natural looking stones, Turquoise & Lapis and used mixes of gold and silver in one beautiful piece.

Inspired by teenage dreams, innocence, our happiest moments, a memory of how innocence grew into strength and the passion for truth through creativity, Villa Carlotta will bring you back to a place when daydreams were all that mattered. 

All those kind of dreamy moments are what I wanted you to feel from our latest Look Book, Villa Carlotta, Resort 2016
